Congratulations to 1996 Pulitzer Prize Winner Lisa Pollak

April 08, 1997

The Baltimore Sun's management and staff congratulate feature writer Lisa Pollak on winning the 1996 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Writing.

While the nation focused on an ugly incident, Lisa saw a story no one else was telling: What was it like to be John Hirschbeck ` to survive the death of one son and to wake up every day knowing that another son suffered from the same disease.

Lisa's story in The Sun went beyond the event being covered by every other newspaper in America. Only hers revealed the human drama behind the story.

Congratulations, Lisa.
